Make your mind up you are NOT going to turn around and leave upon arrival

I like to seek out the local hole in the wall places to try when we travel. This was our first trip to Destin and Dewey Destin Seafood seemed to fit that bill. BUT,,, as we made our way down the narrow road, past some rather "rustic" scenes, the others in the car were not so sure they wanted to... read more

Outstanding location near Crab Island in Destin Bay. Fresh Sea Food. Here you choose a picnic bench, order your food and they bring it to you. I ordered the steamed crab legs basket. The crab legs were very good. It was served with too little drawn butter..but when I went back to the order counter they gave me plenty. My... More

I have been eating at Dewey Destin's on Calhoun for over 12 years...Never to disappoint. I love the fact it is locally owned, and from what I have heard, the owner was born and raised on the property. It is not a fancy joint, right on the water, accessible by boat, car, or foot...I live on the panhandle, I like... More

We went several places to eat during our stay in Destin but this little gem of a place was our absolute favorite! We had a hard time finding it at first because the sign was a little difficult to see. It doesn't look like much as you park and start to walk up to it. However, the closer you get,... More

The seafood (blackened red snappers and grouper, and bronzed cobia) was well prepared to our liking. Our server was very energetic, courteous, and on point with her all recommendations ... definitely a "must try".

My husband and I have vacationed in Destin several times and always make a point to eat at Deweys. The food and the service are always good, the workers are always friendly, but it's the eating out on the dock that makes this place special to me. Don't forget to order the Key Lime Pie. It's great!

This is a local dive that a lot of tourist seem to find out about as well. Fried, grilled or steamed, you can get just about any seafood you want and it's all great. Well worth the stop. The parking sucks and it's hard to find, but well worth the adventure.

Have been to Dewey's twice and enjoyed my meal and atmosphere both times. Food is excellent. One of my favorite restaurants in Destin.

Great fresh seafood that can be eaten "in shack" but the best seating is on the 2 piers at the picnic tables. Get there early and see the tourist ships go by and maybe some flyover from the airforce. Good dolphin viewing on sunny days. When you get to the entrance keep going until you see the parking signs or... More

We dined at the location on the bay on Calhoun Avenue because we didn't know there was another location on the boardwalk. The atmosphere is rustic, outdoor dining on picnic tables with umbrellas. Terrific view of the bay looking west (sunsets). The fried shrimp is their specialty and they were delicious (lightly battered). The fries and slaw are ordinary. Go... More
